Playtech Tiger Stacks Video Slot Review

Tiger Stacks: Demo

Playtech heads to the wilds of China in Tiger Stacks, a simple 5 reel, 30 payline video slot. Highlights of this Asian adventure are the free spins round (where you’ll have the pick of 3 different free spin/wild symbol combinations) and the 3 jackpot prizes that award 500, 5,000 or 50,000 coins. Play on all devices from between 30p and £300 per spin.

Head to a tranquil valley

Red and gold usually dominates slots with this theme. Tiger Stacks is a much more technicolour affair. The setting is a tranquil valley that’s filled with trees, tigers and jolly looking pagoda-style buildings. The deep green reels feature coloured A to 9 royal values as well as a red lantern, gold pots and white, orange and black tigers. Payouts of up to 16.67 times your bet are on offer if you land 5 of the black tigers in a line. The wild replaces everything bar the scatter and can hit on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 only.

3 Tiger jackpots

Tiger Stacks offers the chance to land 3 jackpot prizes. The Tiger Jackpots feature is triggered by landing stacked tiger symbols on reels 1 and 2 on the same spin. The jackpots are triggered if you fill the other reels with stacked tigers:

  • Mini Jackpot triggers by also filling reel 3 with a stacked tiger – pays 16.67 x bet
  • Major Jackpot triggers by also filling reels 3 and 4 with stacked tigers – pays 166.67 x bet
  • Grand jackpot triggers by also filling reels 3, 4 and 5 with stacked tigers – pays 1,666.67 x bet

Free Games feature

The Free Games feature is activated by landing 3 of the yin and yang scatter symbols, starting from reel 1. You’ll then be offer 3 different combinations of free spins and wild symbols. Here are the choices.

  • 15 free spins with all white tigers on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 turning wild
  • 10 free spins with all white and orange tigers on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 turning wild
  • 5 free spins with all white, orange and black tigers on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 turning wild

Re-triggers are possible here too.

Straightforward Asian-themed action

There’s nothing particularly flashy about Tiger Stacks. The simple design is very nicely done. The gameplay is equally straightforward. The added wilds can have a decent impact in the free spins and the jackpot add another layer. It’s not something we’ll be coming back to again and again but for a straightforward slot with an Asian flavour, Tiger Stacks delivers rather well. I would rather play Quickspin’s Tiger’s Glory or Thunderkick’s Tiger Rush which offer much bigger winning potential.
